Breakfast in Bed

Happy Valentine's Day everyone and of course it is also Pink Saturday. So today I thought I would serve you breakfast in bed.

You can start off with a healthy strawberry smoothie. I have a smoothie almost every morning with yogurt,banana,milk,and one other fruit such as strawberries ,peaches etc. I think it is a good way to start the day.

I made you some buttermilk wholewheat pancakes as well and since it is Valentines I made them heart shaped for you.

Since it is pink Saturday too,I put some pink linens on the bed.

and I am using some pink china-remember this teapot that my husband gave me a few years ago for Valentines Day. I wonder what this Valentines Day will bring!

a heart on the pretty pink chenille bedspread.

This little lamp was an ugly yellow when I brought it home but a coat of paint and a new lampshade was just the thing for it.

Well,it is a beautiful sunny day here so you probably don't want to linger in bed too long and Beverly is expecting you at How Sweet the Sound.

Happy Valentine's Day and I hope you feel loved and will share some love with someone else either a special someone or a lonely neighbor.Every day,I see lots of lonely elderly folks who would love to have a visitor!

Thank you for taking the time to visit me.

Carolyn

Mmmmmmm Carolyn, thank you so much. The smoothie was lush and the pancakes, mmmmm hmmmm, just delish. I hope you don't mind but I added some real Vermont maple syrup. Thank you SO MUCH. Loved your suggestion to help someone else this Valentine's Day. Just bought a "red", yes, "red" teddy bear for a kid who has almost no one and a sweet card to go with it. Happy, happy weekend of love, Carolyn. And many thanks to you for adding SO MUCH beauty and gentleness to our world! Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

♥Mimi♥ said...

So sorry that I missed you yesterday. It seemed like the day just ran away from me! But, with this being ♥Valentine's Day♥ what better time for me to stop by to see your Pink Saturday goodies.

It's been a long and dark winter up here near Canada so filling myself up with pink is my way on the weekend of chasing away the blues - not that blue isn't a nice color, too☺

I ♥ coming here. All the pink and all the girlie stuff just floods my brain and makes me want to do a happy dance right where I sit!

Thanks so much for sharing. After all, isn't sharing one of life's greatest pleasures?

♫Happy Valentine's Day♫
